I am 64 now, and loving it!5 DAYS OF MARCH 2018 THINGDOM-02


I am also happy to report that I am well on the way to comleting a draft of a equal to a romance novel  “New Kiss Horizon” that emerged in 2016.




A certain man and I have noved on to having a Thingdom


Thing” in this case is the perfect ,well, “Thing” because a few years ago, he told me that if we ever bcame some'”thing” the whole damned world should know, and this is his way  of telling the whol damned world in a way I did not anticipate.

Well, whole damned world,  here it is

me and my Thingdom

Me and my Thingdom


and since I have it now, I am going to mention how happy and thankful I am for having it.

This wonderful man surprised me by putting his own name on the photo.  I will take choice over coercion any day,  and now I bask in choice, the glow of choice, beauty of choice and whatever possibilities lie ahead.  

Because they do!


Choice makes a difference and I am so pleased that here he is choosing me in a most public way.


He is the source of my “Dream Baby” nickname.  The very source of love in my life.  I have never made it secret that I love this man.  The photos of me in a man’s hat, well, that hat belonged to him.


I even wore it  when I performed at his poetry Club in Manahattan,

the Bowery Poetry Club:





I started falling in love with this man the moment he Kissed me in the taxi in Chicago!  Once we Kissed, I knew everything I needed to know! the instant Chemistry is still amazing!  That just doesn’t happen for real, but it  did to me.

He always liked long hair, and do I ever have long hair now (rooted in my scalp, no weave, no extenstions, and no relaxer in my life)!  Would  he still  love me even if I had no hair?  I think so; for he is not a shallow man at all. Very special, one of a kind to be sure.  Do I have it because I’m multiracial?  I cannot say, but I have it.  A few pics of me in a natural way:





Nor were we young, I was 60 the first time he kissed me and he was 66.

There is no other man who can Kiss like him on the planet!  Does not the song go, “It’s in his Kiss”?  Well, it really is!


I don’t have a photo of us kissing, but when I do, I will post it.  The onyl eperformance we have dome together so far:




My two parts in the movie, featuring excerpts from poems I had written.  What says “Green Light and Gamma Rays” should be as written, “Green Light and Gamma Ways”  

Now he has a name, and I get to use it.  Because he did.  It is so wonderful to be 64 and have Love in my life at  last.  


He rocks my world!



what we have is Solid!



In my life for more than 30 years.  He first knew me as “Forker Gryle” (His spelling of “Girl” –I had pink hair then.PINK-HAIR FORKER GRYLE


A collection of poems that we two poets wrote together: 





Aneurysm of the Firmamament

book by Thylias Moss and Mr. Bob Holman

Much more to Follow, Always I hope.






This will be brief: 


At Long Last, I have an official Thingdom with the man I Love!  –you heard it right!  I now have a Thing with a man I have Loved for years.  


Thylias Moss and Bob Holman now have a Thing!  I am so very happy about this.  His idea.  He put his own name there; entirely his choice!


me and my Thingdom

Me and my Thingdom


Below, How having  a Thing with this wonderful man makes me look.  I am about to turn 64,  at the end of this month, and he is about to turn 70 early next month.





He rocks my world!





From the First time ever I saw his face! I am in love with him!


feels good!



Celebrating Thingdom!

I Thylias Moss, author of 13 published bbooks, incluiding the roance novel, “New Kiss Horizon” recently nominated for a “Book Excellence Award”:


NKH WITH BADGEwould also like to announce my “Thingdom“:


Thingdom happened on the anniversaty of seeing him in Chicago, 23 October through 26 October.  In the photo, we stand on a bridge in Chicago, IL, and a bridge is somethign that connects things, help them to get past troubled water, for one thing.


thingdom 2


It has been a long time coming, and I am so glad that it is here.  There is no better man in the world, I assure you of that! No one knows better what a “New Kiss Horizon”  is than this man, because he made it with me.  There is “No One” able to say anything contrary and be telling the truth, “No One” as in Alicia Keys, the theme song of “Thingdom”: (He calls me “Dream Baby“)

We’re in this love together!


 I assure you that he and I were on a “Freeway of Love”every moment that we were in Chicago, makin that weekend famous:



I am very pleased to announce my thingdom with a man I have loved for several years. Yes; Thingdom on Facebook.  Where the entire romance with, well, Bob Holman began.  Photo taken in Chicago, Illinois, our first weekend together.


In the photo, I am 60 and he is 66.  I do not know who took it, an anonymous person happy to see ths elderly couple taking a walk in Chicago.  We stopped and stood on ths bridge that connects us to every possibility of life.  


Now we are a thing! –hallelujah!


a whole weekend of firsts! 23 October – 25 October every year!

For this anniversary a most special song, full of meaning for us, “No One” Alicia Keys:





Isn’t Love wonderful at any age!




Although it is much too premature to announce that my 14th book might become reality. a book about an exceptional man that I was lucky enough to call my father, 

a former student now an editor, Jason Kirk told me how he liked the part he has read, and he was kind enough to make room for me today, a visit I surely needed in a time of enormous upheaval in my life.  It was not my mother who understood me and tried to make sure that I existed in a world where any opportunity could be mine as long as it was in human possibility.  


I will not say more as I would not like to spoil the book.  


It was my father.  100% Daddy’s girl right here although I am 63 years old.

Here’s Jason Kirk and I, 


If there is any kind of justice in this world, then the book about my father will be book #14 for me.  Unfortunately, my father died before the most important things happened, the birth of my own genetic son, the only person other  than myself who has the gift of his DNA. 


I wrote this book to show my father the greatest happinesses in my life, the highest highs, all of which he missed.  I wanted my father, my son also, to know what it is like for me to really be in love.  I wanted to introduce my father to the real man behind Thomas Robert Higginson, but I guess Thomas Robert  is not ready for that level of TRUTH,, so instead I introduce him to a proxy  Thomas Robert Higginson (proxy images above), but in my heart, and I hope that in Thomas Robert’s heart also, he is aware, and likes that it is him.

I myself am so thankful and grateful that Jason Kirk,  He knows a great deal about Limited Fork.


He was there when I was learning  that theory myself.  I will be learning it for the rest of my life.  It is that important and transformative.


Jason Kirk (with fork)

so far Jason likes the book! –and that means everything tonight. The book is a way that more people can get to know this man. And I wanted to introduce the persons most important to me to him.  The gist of my ambition.


Getting closer to Fruition! 




Today, I completed a poem about my favorite hat, 


A MOST SPECIAL HATFairly ordinary, I guess as far as hats are concerned.  But I tend to wear this hat most days.


A gift from a friend of mine, Thomas Robert Higginson; it’s my hat now.


Some photos of me in this hat, and more photos of the hat itself:

This is also collaboration with his hat; little bit of him remains in it.  

Golden Coach

by Dobbs



I have already promised to wear my hat for someone.  Pole-dancing I believe.  

Will say more when there is more to say. 


Great Wednesday in these Ann Arbor parts.


All about my hat, a gift from Thomas Robert Higginson, Ansted Moss composed and performed the music that I arranged, and I also perform the vocals, derived from poems written by co-learners (members) of a graduate writing encounter, called “class” by others.


I am most eager to honor a most special hat, and lucky that a system of co-learners happened to write  poems about a “Fedora“, poems that I compiled into a soundtrack for this little unassuming slideshow.


Please enjoy.

Thank you.


BPC reading

I now have my round-trip tickets for  my flight to LaGuardia for my performance at the Bowery Poetry Club, 9 July 2017, 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm, a week after my reading in Mexico City


Title of BPC Event:

LFMK (Looking for my Killer)


Looking for My Killer (in the math of emotion)

I will be sharing

—decadent, malicious little vignettes as delectable as string cheese, refreshingly irreverent as you digest it, perhaps also blissfully irrelevant

—pure indulgent naughtiness

—splendid, if only for the wickedness

—ghastly!  bereft of redeeming values; mocks our most esteemed institutions, even life itself

—written by the light of hellfire; dazzling touches base with the base

LFMK  is a collection of  prose poams that may see publication in 2018 at the earliest from Jamii; what a fine bit of service to the community.


My very own Olivia Pig, sitting by my printer and an extermal hard drive.

I am eager for this but l am also terrified, and there are many reasons for my fear; I cannot express them.  Whatever happens happens.


I have purchased my ticket.  So it is definite now.

I will do my best, and Olivia Pig will help me.
